Dear Guru,

I am trying to enable SSL on port 8443 on my application on TOMCAT.

I already got the TOMCAT ROOT application works. https://localhost:8443.
However, my own application only works for port 8080, and port 8443 does not work.

attached file is my server.xml

Here is the doc I follow.

http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-6.0-doc/ssl-howto.html

If I missed something on my app.

Can any help me out?

Thanks and regards,

If Tomcat run as a embedded in eclipse, it causes problem.
If Tomcat run as stand alone, the SSL works fine. And no error or exeption found.
Even after I put keystore under path\.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.wst.server.core\tmp0\webapps

Anyone has any idea why?

URL without SSL is working- http://localhost:8080/testProject,
however https://localhost:8443/testproject does not work. It shows "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"
And Tomcat did not get any request.

There's "Tomcat in Eclipse" and then there's "TOMCAT in Eclipse". If you are like most people, you're using the WTP plugin that comes bundled with the J2EE spin of Eclipse to run Tomcat.

One of the things I hate about WTP is that it doesn't simply use your Tomcat's config files, it makes copies of some (but NOT all of them! ) and puts them in an Eclipse workspace directory. When you change the master Tomcat configuration, you frequently have to whack WTP upside the head to get its attention; WTP won't automatically sense and apply those changes to its copy.

Which is why I use the sysdeo Tomcat plugin, myself. It doesn't play those games.

Thank you Guys. Problem found: I had two version of JRE (1.50_22) and JRE6(1.6_15), and one JDK which is 1.6 version.

I used JDK 6 to generate .keystore, and JRE1.5 to compile and run application for Tomcat.

Anyway, I unistalled all JRE and JDK. And reinstalled JDK1.6 and JRE1.6, and re-generate .keystore with default value mentioned by Tomcat. And then it works.
No time to find the detail reason. It works now.
